Adult Cardiothoracic Fellowship

Our Division, along with the Division of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, offers an excellent training program for all incoming fellows.

AdultcardiothoracicfellowshipThe program includes perioperative management of complex and diverse cardiac as well as thoracic cases such as:

  • Ascending and descending aortic aneurysms repair
  • Endoluminal stent AAA and DTAA repair
  • Aortic dissection repair
  • Heart and lung transplantation
  • Ventricular assist device placement
  • Complex pediatric cardiac surgery
  • Valve repair and replacement
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery

Our program and the Cardiology Division have set up a strong curriculum to meet the fellow’s perioperative TEE training requirements (average 10-12 weeks designated echocardiography training time).

All fellows (including some of our residents) who have graduated from our program have passed the National Board of Echocardiography Perioperative TEE Exam.

There are also some basic and clinical research opportunities for the fellows who are interested in developing an academic career in the future.

Our CT anesthesia fellowship is an ACGME-accredited program, which includes rotations in CT Anesthesia, TEE, the CICU as well as elective rotations to fulfill the overall fellowship training requirement.

Our current caseload and concomitant parallel commitment toward resident education allows for us to accept 3 fellows per year.
